Biographical Information[edit]

Kazuki Mishima made his Nippon Pro Baseball debut in 2013.

Mishima was the second-round pick of the Yokohama BayStars in the 2012 draft. His first strikeout in NPB came against Shuichi Murata and he got his first hit off Kenichi Matsuoka. He was 6-9 as a rookie in 2013, with a 3.94 ERA. He fanned 145 in 146 1/3 IP but walked 79. At the plate, he was 4 for 30. He was the first BayStars rookie in five years to throw a complete game shutout; Kentaro Kuwahara had done it most recently. He finished tied for 8th in the Central League in losses (even with Daiki Enokida, Bryan Bullington, Kyohei Muranaka and Masanori Ishikawa), led in walks (20 ahead of #2 Ryosuke Yagi), was 6th in whiffs (between Hirokazu Sawamura and Yasuhiro Ogawa) and was second with 20 homers allowed (6 behind teammate Daisuke Miura). He tied Miura for the second-best ERA among Yokohama's most-used starters, behind Shugo Fujii.

He throws a fastball (peak 96 mph), slider, curveball and forkball.
